Namespace:   System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public:
DateTimeOffset AddYears(
	int years
)

Parameters

years
Type: System::Int32

A number of years. The number can be negative or positive.

Return Value

Type: System::DateTimeOffset

An object whose value is the sum of the date and time represented by the current DateTimeOffset object and the number of years represented by years.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The resulting DateTimeOffset value is less than MinValue.

-or-

The resulting DateTimeOffset value is greater than MaxValue.

Unlike most of the other methods that add a single time interval unit (such as minutes or days) to a date and time value, AddYears does not enable you to add fractional parts of a year. To add a time that consists of other time units in addition to years to a DateTimeOffset object, use the Add method.

System_CAPS_noteNote

This method returns a new DateTimeOffset object. It does not modify the value of the current object by adding months to its date and time.
